I think people look at certain foods as unhealthy or evil because they are part of a new fad diet. Like gluten for example. People think it is evil and take drastic measures to eliminate it from their diet simply because they want to believe it is going to be the magic cure to weight loss.
But we need to start seeing weight loss as total caloric consumption and expenditure. When we eat less calories than we need to sustain our weight, we will lose weight. That is the basic law of thermodynamics. You should only really stop eating gluten if you have Celiac Disease.
